Climbing Lions are just Wow..!!
5/5

It was a little boaring evening game drive on first day as we only sighted some antelopes and wild boars in Kibale NP. Part of an hour the game drive, we saw 3 females lions from a far and even with a binocular, the lions were too far from clear. But, the next morning drive in the Ishasha sector was much more rewarding and wonderful. We saw groups of elephants (including baby elephants) and buffaloes crossing into our land cruizer's path. We also get oportunity to came up close to 3 elephants. After another 3 hours gruelling drive and dozed off under the heat, then we finally found a lion climbing up on the tree. According to our guide Frank, beautiful male lion rarely comes out in the morning so we were very lucky at that particular time!

It was a Long hike, but breathtaking result.
5/5

Wow, just wow. This was the most important reason we booked a trip to Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest, Uganda with Frena Adventures and it was totally worth it.

We had to hike for 3,5 hours before we found the mountain gorillas, that was pretty tough and We were tracking with our guide Frank. Once we found them, all the tiredness was gone. They were so peaceful and amazing giants to observe. The time we had spent with them was over very soon.

We took a porter with us, also to support the community. If the gorilla family is close, you probably don’t need one. But it’s still good to bring a porter because you never know when you need help and also this way you can help someone make some money, we were glad we payed a porter to help. Some other people in our group regretted they didn’t get a porter.

The gorilla tracking is a pretty expensive activity, but totally worth the money. I would recommend this to anyone and I definitely want to do this again some day.

Amazingly Beaitiful Falls
5/5

The whole Murchison Falls National Park is amazing and so much beautiful. The first thing that we want to do is, reach to to top and we did that, the top of the falls. The power that the Nile puts between the rocks is powerful. At the top there are several different spots to walk around to get different perspectives. On next day we took a boat ride on the Nile that went to almost near the bottom of the falls. I wish it would have gone a little more close but the ride was great though. Go on one of the smaller boats, they seem to get closer to the animals. Our ranger Apollo,put our boat right up on a bank where a Nile crocodile was sunning and it was just about three feet away. Must have past at least five hippopotamus pods. We stayed at the Parkside Safari Lodge and I highly recommend it. On our safari of the park we saw quite a few different animals. The grass was high so it was hard to see animals such as lions. You really had to looking hard. I highly recommend this park to must have a safari once.

Murchison Falls are actually wide.
5/5

Murchison Falls is a little known park but we all the friends were happy to be in Uganda, visited with the help of Frena Adventures. We were quite not sure having been through Amboseli and Mara what to expect or if go through a park in Uganda. But even we were not disappointed. The boat safari on the Nile is a unique safari experience where we got to see such an incredible array of wildlife. Hippos, Nile crocodiles and elephants drinking on the banks of the Nile. On the game drives we got to see lions,giraffes, leopards, here’s of buffalo, elephants and much more. Finished off with a chimpanzee trek on our way out. Really All round top park.

Lake Bunyonyi seems to be Out of this world !!
5/5

Lake Bunyonyi gives you that feeling of being out of this world and into completely new peaceful world!! It was the most highlight place of our 4 days tour. You can get a beautiful scenery of the lake from some hotels on the hill ( we stayed at Bunyonyi Safaris Resort). Frank told us that this lake is really clean and no dangerous fishes, so very safe for swimming ( as long as you are ok with deep water, as its the second deepest lake in East Africa)

Great experience but it's not a easy hike to see gorillas!
5/5

We debated a lot whether or not to go to Rwanda or Uganda to see the gorillas. Ultimately due to the lower cost and in budget, we decided to trevel in Uganda, we chose Bwindi and loved it! Our guide helped us pick a medium difficulty walk with a family of gorillas that included babies. The walk was not so easy at all, about more than an hour and a bit of uphill walking. Close to seeing the gorillas, we left our bags/packs and then within a few minutes we were surrounded by gorillas! It was incredible!! We felt so close to them and often the rangers would help cut down some of the foliage to help us get closer or to see better. We saw 3 babies, one who was dancing around in the trees. The hour with the gorillas passed by very fast! It was truly a worthwhile experience.

Trekking the beauty at Lake Bunyoni
5/5

After visiting this place, I must say Lake Bunyoni is one of the most beautiful sights in Uganda, drowned a history and surrounded by stunning views. Across the way is a place called Edirisa were we stayed for some time and our guides Apollo and Frank helpout touring the surrounding areas. The place is one in a million and is a must see in Uganda. Highly recommend a trip to the Lake. Apollo managed a short boat ride around and tell us some interesting facts about the region and the people. Many small islands within the Lake and you can stop at some and walk around there. Our 4 days trip was managed in a very precise manner by Frena Adventures and want to thanks a lot...I Hope we will back here soon..

Beautiful Lake Bunyonyi !
5/5

On our 4 days tour we stayed on a hill overlooking the lake and it was absolutely beautiful view. Sunset over the lake was amazing, and you can take trips out on the lake as well. There are lot of islands you can go around and some you can walk around. One of the islands even has zebras!

Accommodation were so good , we stayed at Bunyonyi Safaris Resort with our guide Alollo. We did a boat tour on a small, engine-powered canoe type boat. You can also rent canoes or go swimming.
This is a great place to relax for a day or two after tracking the gorillas.

This Park is Absolutely Amazing Place
5/5

Me and my Partner travelled to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Junuary 2020 and we had a great experience with Frena Adventures.
We tracked a family of 15 Gorillas. which was quite difficult in some very rugged terrain but well worth it when you catch up to them. Just sitting and watching them makes you realize how close to humans they are. It was an absolutely amazing experience and well worth it.

Mesmerizing Journey to Uganda - Thanks to East African Jungle Safaris...
5/5

It was a great experience to be so close to nature and becomes more exciting as you have to "earn the experience" by all the efforts that a traveller puts in, which gives more satisfaction. My Kudos to each of the members who has involved to our trip and make the travel such an amazing experience. Should categorically state my thanks to Babylon who was a wonderful guide/driver and was a pleasure to interact with. Very good accommodation and Great food at most of the places.
Its a great place for anybody who is looking for a trip out of box and out of comfort zones but need a sense of accomplishment. Look forward very much to a return visit...
